Tree Photo Contest
Tree Photo Contest Overview
The City of Cocoa has been designated a Tree City USA and to commemorate this recognition, we invite our citizens and visitors to share your favorite tree in the City. A well maintained and healthy tree canopy provides beauty for our community. Trees also benefit us by improving air quality, reducing heat with shade, providing wildlife habitat, absorbing stormwater and protecting us during storms by dampening winds.
Show Us Your Trees
Use your phone or favorite camera to take a photo of your favorite Cocoa tree and enter it in one of our designated categories listed below. Photos will be judged based on the categories they were entered. A winner will be selected from each categories as well as people’s choice. Invasive species of trees will not be considered for this contest. Previous entries will not be considered for a winning entry this year.
